I have been holding on to Bax Coen’s new red Prestige boots for a few days. I’d put them on, gaze at them with love and affection, try to find clothes that will equal the boots, and give up.
Mr. Musashi called me over and asked me to model one of his dresses one night and he handed another set to me—the “Diamonds on Me” set. After putting on the red version, I realized I had found my dress to suit Bax’s boots. Shiryu hand draws all his textures, meticulously working on them so they flow over the avatar’s mesh as if real fabric.This pattern was especially fabulous.
I chose Keri Clip’s ubiquitous Writer hair for this look because it doesn’t look as sleek and tailored as the rest of the outfit. Its hip waves and barely restrained messiness offset the geometry and tightness of Shiryu’s skirt and Bax’s boots.
I finished the outfit with a curiously geometric set by Random Calliope. No longer in world much, Random has left a legacy in SL with his fine, hand-made, tiny prim jewelry. This necklace, Tesselations, was one of the best birthday presents I had ever received in SL—given to me by Random himself right before he released the sets. We miss you, Random.
